Sadly, mint was a non-existent color in my stash. I tend to collect a lot of saturated colors, which is probably why. Anyway, I did a little shopping at the Intrepid Thread, and I have very few leftovers. I think it's a great color for a baby quilt, but I'm still not digging light/pastel colors (for me, anyway).
Both colors look a bit different in the light of my guild meeting, but you can see the fabrics better.
I was itching to make a wonky cross quilt (thanks to Quilts From The Attic and A Quilter's Table). However, I wanted this quilt to feature one large cross, so I started there and then built up the left side with scraps. I always enjoy creating an improv quilt, and this was no exception. I bought the Alison Glass fabric for the border without seeing it in person first, and I was pleased to see that, paired with all the green, the gray shows up a bit green itself. It made a perfect border!
Jen is an all-around wonderful lady and teacher, and I'm so happy for her family. I hope this quilt gets a lot of love!
